this is backlog from last Sunday.
When I first heard of GuitarHero and RockBand I admit I thought it was a game especially designed for middle-aged men who use to dream about becoming rock stars and yet never learned to play more than “Stairway to Heaven” badly. Now that I’ve played RockBand twice I have to say my opinion is pretty much the same. It’s fun, but I feel like such a poser sometimes.
My favorite instrument to play is the drums though it’s by far my worse instrument. When I was a teen I told my mom I wanted to play drums (how many chick drummers do you know?), but my mom gently said I’d have nowhere to practice drums in our two bedroom apartment we already shared with two other people. And so I settled on guitar. I sucked at guitar possibly worse than I suck at RockBand drums.
Perhaps I would’ve made a shitty drummer (my instincts tell me it is most likely), but thanks to RockBand, I can now play the drums on four colored squares and a bass pedal. I’m getting better.
